Spread the love           Mayawati has refused to be part of the greater alliance (mahagathbandhan ) unless she is given a major chunk of seats to contest. She may be right in her assertion. But politically she is wrong. The main problem with Mayawati, however, is that she does not comprehend the new idiom of Dalit assertion. […]

Spread the love           Her reasons for not entering into an alliance in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh are rather flimsy. Significantly, she spared Congress President Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi from her tirade but she picked up senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh, whom she called a “BJP agent who is opposed” to any tie-up between the two […]

Spread the love           The emergence of the new Congress-JD(S) coalition in Karnataka after BJP’s failed manoeuvre to form a government without the numbers, depending on the Governor’s patronage, has given an impetus for both Congress and regional and state-level parties to forge stronger bonds to defeat Modi in 2019. Here’s a report, for Different Truths. The […]

Spread the love           Those fighting for the archbishops’ right to freedom of expression question that if a mahant can be made ‘chief minister’, what’s wrong in an archbishop issuing a pastoral-political letter. Here’s a tongue-in-cheek take on politics, for Different Truths. Pastoral brings to mind rolling hills, green meadows, scattered farms, standing crops, farms, sheep, fowl, horses, […]

Spread the love           The Congress President Rahul Gandhi has been acting as the unifier of the anti-BJP forces giving up the arrogance associated with the grand old party that it is the natural party of governance. Karnataka assembly elections results set the process and frankly speaking, the emergence of the BJP as the single largest party […]

Spread the love           The fact of the matter is Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s hold on the political narrative might be slipping but the Indian-American’s hold on the world’s top spelling bee contest has been unassailable for the last 18 consecutive years. All the top three in the 2018 Scripps National Spelling Bee are also Indian-Americans. An […]

Spread the love           There is a modicum of truth in Jaitley’s argument that the “chemistry” of a New India will overcome the “arithmetic” of “disparate” political groups because of Narendra Modi’s personal popularity. Yet, what is undeniable is the possibility that the addition of the voting percentages of the anti-BJP parties can substantially erode the BJP’s […]
